Olivenhain Country Preschool and Infant Center for the Arts...

A balance of academics and arts Olivenhain Country Preschool and Infant Center for the Arts mission is to provide your child with a safe, loving, nurturing environment to acquire proper skills and values to prepare them for their future. Here at OCP our teachers provide an environment of many mediums encouraging your child to explore and learn. For example, Cooking, the arts, rhythm and movement, gardening, sign language and Spanish. Beginning a foreign language at an early age, along with our continued use of

these skills throughout our program, allows us to see the benefits of a second language in action. When learning is presented through many mediums, with a balance of academics and arts along with kinesthetic and tactile experiences, children will retain more of this knowledge. Our daily activities include a variety of learning, all wrapped in fun, play and exploration, with your child using their imagination. We look forward to sharing with you the unique advantages of our environ-

ment and programs and we invite you to tour our facility, meet our teachers, and see for yourself how kids are laughing and growing while learning at OCP.

Come and experience what makes us unique: • A safe, loving, nurturing environment • Hands on art & crafts, cooking, gardening • Our family values: politeness, good manners & respect • Art & nature exploration in a cheerful setting
